Poisoned Hills: Opium cultivation surges under government control in Burma

By Palaung Women's Organization  •  January 26, 2010

Through community assessments, this report by the Palaung Women’s Organization (PWO) shows that opium cultivation is increasing dramatically in Burma’s northern Shan State. The amounts are far higher than reported by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and are flourishing in areas controlled by Burma’s military regime, not in the ceasefire areas claimed by the UN.
